About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and a qualified early years teacher. I have 7 years experience teaching nursery and key stage one children and a further 6 years experience working as an early years practitioner with children under 5.

I started childminding to achieve a better work life balance with my husband and 2 young children. I have one child in year 1 and a 3 year old at home with me.

I provide a safe, positive and nurturing home environment.

I believe children learn best through play, first-hand experiences and through real life contexts. I provide a well planned learning environment, quality resources and challenging experiences to support children’s exploration, learning and development.

I have an interest in:
• Schemas- observing play and providing play opportunities linked to interests and play styles.
• Creative activities- using open-ended resources for creative expression.
• Outdoor play- exploring nature and outdoor spaces in all weathers.
• Messy play- using a variety of resources as a sensory outlet for children.

My Experience

As a teacher I took on all roles and responsibilities in order to safeguard and best meet the needs of children and their families from a variety of cultural backgrounds.

Having worked with the youngest of children throughout my career, being spontaneous and following learning across different situations is second nature to me.

I taught high quality sessions using a range of approaches such as story telling, music, ICT and practical exploration.
